Framework for suppliers of digital services to general practice

The Digital First Online Consultation and Video Consultation framework in general practice which will improve the standards of systems available for patients and practices has been launched.

The new procurement framework means that PCNs working with commissioners, will be able to select assured systems from a growing range of suppliers to better meet local needs - improving choice, functionality, usability and integration.  The framework will drive product improvement responsive to user needs including work underway to better integrate online consultation systems with GP clinical systems and to send requests appropriately to other primary care services to help reduce pressure on practices and navigate patients to the right person first time.
